Greenpois0n Jailbreak, Piracy Concerns with Apple iOS 4.1
It seems that there’s a lot of commotion about the upcoming release of the Greenpois0n jailbreak which is said to use the SHAtter exploit to jailbreak all current iOS devices for life, meaning of course that once Greenpois0n is released users who jailbreak their device will be able to do whatever they wish when it comes to apps.
According to an article over on Product Reviews, people still criticise user who jailbreak their iPhone or other iOS device even though it is legal to do so, but the piracy comes into play when those people plan on using cracked apps from the App Store.
Apparently the Chronic Dev-Team recently tweeted (which is no longer available) that they don’t want that to happen but don’t have the ability to block piracy on jailbroken handsets and are apparently working on making the exploit to disallow the use of Installous or similar apps that download cracked apps.
If they block the repository Installous is in there’s nothing stopping it being moved to another repository and if they block the name in all Cydia applications, developers could simply change the name which could also block apps that might be against piracy or informing users not to use Installous.
